IRS Public Corruption Update

Filed under: Probable Cause — Tags: — Bill @ 2:13 pm


[Here’s a link to a representative sample of the IRS public corruption investigations for the first quarter of FY 2011.  As always, these give [readers some idea of the dimensions of public corruption.


  1. What surprises me is how brief the list is. You would think it would be arm’s length with all the shenanigans going on across the country!

  2. Dan,

    This is not the entire list, only a representative sample of the IRS investigations that have been adjudicated. The FBI has its own list, and often both agencies work together on public corruption investigations. By statute only the IRS can investigate violations of the Internal Revenue Code, however both agencies have concurrent jurisdiction on other crimes such as bribery.

    For example, most officials who accept bribes don’t list “bribes” under “miscellaneous income” on their tax forms. Consequently, the bribe is illegal, but so is the tax evasion.
